Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2008
Light gold colour. Lightly herbal aroma. Light (fuggle maybe?) taste with faint diacetyl. Fairly sweet. This did nothing for me.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Clear, no head. Sweet grain, white chocolate aromas. Low carbonation. Buttery, like brioche. Sessionable, unoffensive but sweet. Served nitro @ the pub.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2008
[1377-20080523] Tap. Light citrus and yeast aroma. Clear, yellow brown body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Strong flavour of toasted yeast and wheat and barbecued corn. Light-medium body is smooth. Super toasted and strange corn characteristics.
(@ C’est What; Toronto, ON)

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2008
Cloudy golden with a thick head, maybe due to nitro. Funky pils hops in the nose, but a grainy, muddy flavour that to my senses reminded me of fish and chips. Yes, the top note here, to me, was fried haddock. Itís the first such beer Iíve had with those qualities. Very dry, bland and definitely not excellent.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2008
2005-05-23. Crisp golden yellow body with a creamy white head (3+) Sweetish flavour, light grainy notes, yeasty fruit notes. Muted mild sweet grainy aroma. Average palate. Quaffable, nut unpleasant but a touch bland, lackluster. On tap at Cíest What

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2008
Draught. At Cíest What. Clear light gold with a small creamy white head (3-). The aroma is very dry and wheaty, soft of floral, nothing bad. The taste is a little awful - dead grass and paper. The mouthfeel is soft, but the body is light and harsh - it wants to be grassy, but it isnít, itís just not very good - bring back the old MBA, it was at least sort of decent.

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2008
Very sessionable light ale, with reasonabley good bitterness in a session ale, and you can smell some hops. Carbonation bubbles, some lace. Would seek this out if only craft beer about, but little complexity of taste. Lighter than average mouthfeel. At Cíest What.

2.8
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2008
Half pint at the brewpub- Amber liquid sits beneath an inch of creamy white froth. Nose is of mild fruit and sugary malts with straw and grapefruit. Tastes of muted citric hops and sweet grainy malt, with a hint of bread crust. Pretty creamy and smooth, but fairly flavourless compared to some of their other stuff, and not like any other milds Iíve had.

On tap at Cest What
Appearance: Light pale bright gold with thin head. 3-
Nose : faint aroma , grainy fruity feel , slight hop note.5-
Flavor/Palate : Not to clean . Light fairly forgettable ale. Malty touch, some citric hop character floats behind.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2008
On tap @ Cíest What? Mild bready nose, light amber, creamy white head. Grassy flavour, reminds me of the smell from the unfinished mash tun. Light bodied, sub-par.
